Hi I'm McKoy

I was born and raised in a tiny town called Huntington! I wouldn't trade my life for anyone else's I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old and I am headed out on a mission soon to Houston, Texas! I couldn't be more excited to spread the gospel! I have absolutely loved living in Utah my whole life... there are so many beautiful things to see here and I am really going to miss it! Especially my small town! I enjoy spending as much time with my family as possible! I have also been blessed to have the same amazing group of friends my whole life! I enjoy the simple things in life. It really doesn't take much to make me happy! I work in a law office as a secretary and in my free time I like to go fishing, four-wheeling, camping, and play the guitar!

Why I am a Mormon

I was extremely blessed to be born and raised in this gospel! From a very young age this religion has been a monumental part of my life. I have always been aware that I have a Father in Heaven, who not only knows everything about me... but loves me too! Yes, I have been taught to pray and I have been taught to choose the right, but now it is all on me! I don't just live the gospel because my parents taught me to, I do it because I have come to know on my own that this church is true! I know that God lives and that he is good all the time, even in bad situations! My life has definitely been a bumpy road, but time after time after time, My loving Heavenly Father has been right there by my side, loving me unconditionally and guiding me throughout my life. I know that God's greatest gift to us is eternal life, which I am especially thankful for since my sweet mom passed away recently. I know that we will see each other again and it will be the most amazing reunion! Most of all I love this gospel, because it gives me hope and it gives me purpose! I believe in miracles and not coincidences! I also know that Jesus Christ died for us, and he suffered for all of our sins, not only so that we may repent and be clean, but so that he may understand us COMPLETELY. No one else can possibly understand us as well as him, so that makes him the most perfect source to turn to in times of need! Once again, I know that this is the true church and I feel like it is such a privilege to know that! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday I possibly can! I like to go to my home ward AND my single's ward! It is a lot of church, but it is fun! Like I said, I am going to to serve a mission in East Houston, Texas. My mission is also Spanish speaking, and I will leave my family for 18 whole months! It is very scary to think about being away from everything I know and love, but I know that it will be worth it so that I will be able to grow closer to Christ and hopefully help others come to him as well!
